Introducing the New Republic’s Next Podcast
This week, Jamil Smith introduces a brand new podcast from the New Republic. Intersection will be back next week with a full episode.
Body Image from All Angles
Every person has a different set of body image concerns and standards that they bring to the table. We talk to Lindy West, Isaac Fitzgerald, Andia Winslow, and Erika Nicole Kendall about how they feel about their bodies, and how their ideas intersect (or don't) with society's standards of beauty and health.
Why Is Santa's Helper Wearing Blackface?
Karen Attiah from the Washington Post explains why, in the Netherlands, Santa has a companion in blackface named "Black Pete." Then, we look back at some of our favorite Intersection moments from 2015.
I really enjoy this podcast and the people Jamil has on as guests are highly educated.
Timely and smart
Such a great podcast - Jamil is a gracious host and the topics are of the moment. So important to have smart conversation on race, politics, body image - loved that one in particular! - and everything else this show decides to focus on.
Sad to see you go
I loved that you were able to put these types of conversations into the atmosphere. These are the necessary discussions that lead to understanding. I will never forget the interview you did with Tamir Rice's grandmother. It moved me. What am I saying? Every single episode did. I pray that someone else or even you in your new endeavor can continue carrying this mantle of positive discussion of what truly makes us up as whole and complete people. Do well my brotha.
